Because the XML specification says so.  Mixed content must have the



(#PCDATA | elem-type-1 | elem-type-2 ...)*

No other option is permitted.

It's possible that they really meant an element type called PCDATA, in
which case the model is okay, but that would be a very ill-considered
choice of element type names.
